Our School Council is a team dedicated to listening to everyone so that our school community is a place where each person feels happy and cared for.
We meet together weekly and we've been recognised by Ofsted as being very effective in contributing to the running of the school.
If you would like to make any suggestions please speak to a class councillor.
Every half term we plan to hold one charitable fund-raising event. In November we chose to raise money for the charity 'Brain Tumour Research' and hosted a Pyjama and Onesie Day - thank you for all your donations, we raised £289.91 for Brain Tumour Research!
Members of our school council were invited to participate in a parking monitoring activity on Chapel Croft with the Local Community Wardens. . .
Restorative approach – Withinfields Primary School Assembly - The School Council were invited to take the assembly at Withinfields Primary School. We showed the film about our schools Restorative approach to behaviour. We had an excellent time and the children communicated really how we sort out conflict at Carr Green Primary. The school loved what we said and now they are doing the Restorative Approach.
Parking - We joined with the local residents to try and find solutions to the parking problems at Chapel Croft and Carr Green Lane. School Council put together a questionnaire for local residents to express the difficulties they experience at School drop off and pick up times. Please see the letter here that we delivered to all the houses surrounding our school that are affected by the parking.
We had a special visit form the Mayor & Mayoress of Calderdale who came to our assembly. He told us about his role and what it is like to be the Lord Mayor. In our assembly we discussed the word Democracy and learnt that it means that everyone has a right to have their say. We discussed the role of our MP and the work councillors do in Brighouse and Rastrick.
We had a question and answer session and the Mayor answered some fantastic questions.
What has been the highlight of being Mayor so far?
Meeting lots of interesting people in the community and visiting schools and going to concerts especially the Remembrance Concert at Halifax Minister.
Have you met the Queen? Not personally but has been at an event where she was there.
Do you have to wear the chain all the time? Only when out on engagements as Mayor.
Is it made of gold? Yes and is 100 years old and is a privilege to wear it.
We had our photograph taken with the Mayor & Mayoress & they had a tour of our school.
